    Edit: Found something here: C:\$Windows.~BT
    Looks like a full install tree.

    Edit#2: Tried starting setup.exe from above directory. All it did was delete everything excet some files in the Sources directory so I guess that isn't it.
    Much like the 8.1 internal upgrade, there is no sign of an ESD folder, however, I extracted 'Install.esd' file from 'Recovery' and converted it to an ISO then created bootable media. A bit of a process but in the end, makes for a quick clean install of build 9860.
    Works fine.

    Ms rolling out first new build 9860


    Were rolling out our first new build to the Windows Insider Program

    October 21, 2014 by



    Hi everyone, Im Gabe. As Joe mentioned last week, I lead the Data & Fundamentals Team here in the Operating Systems Group (OSG). My team is responsible for a number of things, but the one Im most excited about right now is that were helping to review and understand all of the feedback we get from you folks via the Windows Insider Program, and working with all of our feature teams to make changes based on what we hear. You can expect to hear from me going forward on anything regarding the Windows Insider Program including new builds we release.
    New build:

    As a matter of fact, were rolling out a new build today Build 9860! This is the first update build to Windows 10 Technical Preview, and well continue to deliver more as part of the Windows Insider Program. Sometimes theyll be more frequent and sometimes there will be longer gaps, but they will always be chock full of changes and improvements, as well as some bugs and things that are not quite done. As weve said, were sharing stuff early and moving quickly to do so. In fact, the build that were rolling out today is something that we ourselves only got a little over a week ago! I hope that youre as excited about seeing these early builds as we are to share them with you and hear your feedback.

    Is this considered beta 1?

    Don't think so, downloading it now and they call it Preview build 9860 so with some 7000 "under the skin" changes looks like brand new build 9841 > 9860.

    Hi there

    Anybody tested out TOUCH facilities yet compared with previous build.

    (Was busy last night or I'd do this myself - but I'm curious to see if anybody's got results so far).

    Cheers

    Hi there

    Did it actually DO a clean install (on an Empty HDD / SSD ) or did it look for a "Previous version" of Windows on the HDD even if it didn't use it.

    Cheers

    Apparently you can't update if you installed in a VHD. Guess I'll have to reinstall in a regular partition if I want the new build.

    I thought there were supposed to be something like 7,000 changes. Can anyone tell me what is different?

    What happens if you miss a version
    If I forget to boot into 10 and download 9860 version, what happens when the net release comes along

    will that just be a combined update 9860 + changes in the later version
